As i can understand why you don't want links in the fold it client to redirect to other websites besides fold it. Sometimes the link might be so long you can't fit it into the little chat box, or type it out without taking 5 minutes, or while other times having a conversation in the client on something that pertains to folding proteins, you would like to send a link to your group or global chat so that others can read if they choose to. Now, all that needs to be done is make those links work but redirect them to a warning page on the FoldIt website first that reads something like, "you are about to go to a website that is not endorsed, supported or affiliated with fold it. we are not responsible if this link does x,y,z. do you still wish to continue?" Then create a blacklist of websites that are harmful, or import one from a trusted source, now even with working links you aren't liable for it and its relatively safe. Yes i know about bit.ly, but thats still more work then needed to convey a link.
